. >> during the gm bailout there was trouble with the biggest parts provider delphi. that prompted a lot of nervous questions from delphi retirees union and nonunion. that's how president obama describes the u.s. auto bailout on the campaign trail. in 09 teetering gm got billions. but the deal would not work without labor piece and the united auto workers wanted delphi members taken care of. delphi was and is gm's top parts supplier. they were wading through bankruptcy canceled employee pensions handing off the remains to a federal government a nightmare for delphi retirees. >> my pension went from 2,550 dollars a month to the government paying $335 a month. >> the folks at the international union wanted help. if gm restored the union's delphi pensions the uaw would go along with the bailout. gm agreed. >> when you heard the union pensions are being topped off you would think everybody would be treated fairly and equally. that was not the case. >> 20,000 salary delphi retirees got no pension bailout. many suspect they know why. >> the union had political connections and we do not. >> tha
. actually, they had a negotiation to change. they went from, there was an old gm and a new gm, so they went through kind of a managed bankruptcy after all the bailout work was done. >> then ford did it all on their own. >> wait, this is not true. that is not true. ford had the timing on their side. they went and renegotiated their debt before the 2008 crisis hit. they happened to have an advantage of going to wall street to renegotiate their borrowing authority and it was the calendar. >> the ceo of ford said about mitt romney's prescription. he said if gm and chrysler had gone into a free fall bankruptcy, they would have taken the entire supply chain and auto agency with it. he said that in 2010. so that's really what -- >> speculation is not accurate. >> it is because there was no way that private capital were going to keep those companies alive into a chapter 11 reorganization. they would have gone into liquidation. we would have lost not only those two companies, but the supply chain. >> what he said, these are his words, the american auto industry is vital to our national interest as e
of chrysler and g.m. mad at you in the same day this is like an eight-car pileup. it just goes to the whole issue of romney being almost allergic to the truth on some of the issues. >> jennifer: totally. >> i think it is huge. >> jennifer: and i want to play just a snippet of that ad to remind our viewers who may not have caught up with that yet. let's watch this for just a sec. >> announcer: who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth? mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. >> jennifer: you know what kills me is this airs in ohio. ohio knows very well where mitt romney stood on -- >> the guy painted himself as a son of the auto industry and when you have the head of g.m. today saying this belies everything apparently he knows nothing about the way cars are marketed. i think it is very, very damaging and this is an ad that's been called pants on fire. >> jennifer: four pinocchios. there is another issue that's
rallied on stronger earnings reported while markets were closed. likewise, gm soared after blowing past earnings estimates. >>> on the down side, apple shares slid and weighed down the nasdaq. >>> and, sorry, amex, your gold card hasn't got anything on this new, pure-gold diamond and mother of pearl card from a bank in kazakhstan. the price? $100,000 big ones. >>> just ahead, how students in louisiana are making a difference in the wake of sandy. >>> plus, our own brian williams gets a firsthand look at the devastation in his old stomping ground on the jersey shore. you're watching "early today." >>> well, welcome back. we're continuing to watch the storm pulling into portions of oregon, especially portland this morning. looks like a lot of rain is heading your way. then the storm clears out in the afternoon and gets a little better. seattle, this slug of rain up interstate 5, actually, from the border of seattle southwards to the puget sound, olympia and olympics and down into areas outside of portland. as far as the forecast tomorrow, a little improvement, hit-and-miss showers, but pa
. >> reporter: and ryan fought back hard. >> president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose billion billions of dollars from the president's managed bankruptcy. >> reporter: romney has been on the defensive for months on his position on auto bailout, now taking it right to the president. their skirmishes back and forth about this issue on the auto industry show how important it is, especially in ohio, which could hold the key to the white house. there are 800,000 people in jobs related to the auto industry in that state. charlie and norah, they could be decisive. >> jan crawford, thank you so much. national journal white house correspondent major garret is here. let's talk about what jan was just reporting on. why has the fight on the auto bailout gotten so nasty here in the end? >> the obama campaign -- from the romney/ryan ticket that the bailout is sending jobs to china. production may eventually be in china on jeeps. as chrysler and gm have pointed out, jeep, which is a chrysler brand, and gm, also producing autos in northern ohio, aren't shrinking th
a listen to this. >> under president obama gm cut 15,000 american jobs, but they're planning to double the number of cars built in china, which means 15,000 more jobs for china. now comes word that chrysler plants will start making jeeps in, you guessed it, china. >> dana, i'm completely confused here. romney is now saying the bailout cost gm jobs, but he's also said obama did exactly what romney had prescribed. help me. >> well, let me see if i can here. what happened is romney put together this -- first of all, he started at a campaign rally misquoting what chrysler was, in fact, doing. they're not moving jobs to china. they're increasing some work in china to get around the tariffs over there. they've added 7,000 jobs in north america. the fact checkers went after him for that, so he put out an ad essentially saying the same thing on television. the fact checkers went after him for that and he put out a new ad on the radio making a worse and more false allegation. some time ago the pollsters said we're not going to let the fact checkers dictate our campaign and nobody can argue with
,000 jobs that were created last month according to the adp report. gm reports an increase in sales, and housing construction numbers are up. all this is good and unemployment numbers are coming out tomorrow which probably show we've had 33 consecutive months of job growth and more than 5.2 million jobs. that's all good news the president can point to in saying we're moving forward, not backwards. >> amy, the political buzz story of the day. on a lot of front pages of blogs and newspapers, you've got this picture of the president and chris christie, both of them praising each other yesterday. let me play a little of the back-and-forth. >> there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. but you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it. sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what i believe. and i'm just doing the same thing with the president of the united states. so i did pinch myself every day. you know, like when i got on marine one, i'm pinching myself, belie
of the -- the ceos of chrysler and gm had to come out and say you're lie being us and you're going to hurt our sales with your lies. he's not really keeping up with business there, but i have to tell you also, earlier this week he got subsumed by the sandy coverage as it should have, but i put out a story with another videotape in which mitt romney talking to a fund-raiser earlier this year says, you know, there's a better business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off bec
bailout, the auto industry. how many times we heard on the campaign trail from obama and others saying gm is roaring back. and i thought, wow, it all goes back to ohio and that auto bailout which was unpopular at the time, and now here we are. >> right. so one of the big questions is will mitt romney kind of blur the lines on the auto bailout sufficiently to gain a little ground in ohio? because that is a huge issue in that state. and arguably, we could be saying wednesday that that issue won the state for president obama and that it won reelection for president obama. >> do you think we're talking too much about ohio? listen, you've got the romney campaign saying they're looking at pennsylvania, minnesota, that they perhaps have some traction there. and we know the new numbers in florida. we'll talk with marc about that throe show at least a difference in polls from the nbc marist poll and local polls show romney is up more than we're indicating. >> first of all, i think both sides genuinely think they're going to win or certainly think they have a great chance of winning. that said, pen
and the detroit news. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. megyn: stu varney walks us through facts and fix with one of the hottest topics on the campaign trail with five days to go. new york city commuters enduring hours and hours -- normally we have an hour, hour and a half commute, that is not unusual for new yorkers. we are talking four, five hour commutes in bumper-to-bumper traffic to get in and do their jobs. like everyone else in the country the folks that work in manhattan need their paychecks. we are seeing vehicles packing the gas stations that still have fuel. some waiting in lines that are miles long but patients is not long it is short and it is getting shorter by the day. trace gallagher following the traffic nightmare, trace. >> reporter: before i show you more of the crazy pictures megyn and they are crazy i want to give you the problem in a nutshell, the new york metro area gets 25% of its gas from two refineries, those refineries are shut down. the new york harbor 20% comes through the new york harb
outlets are calling mitt romney's latest ads, suggesting auto jobs are being sent to china. gm calls romney's ads politics at its cynical worst. >> what you have there are the two latest ads. as you know, tv is only part of this those days. if you turned on your radio lately, you have noticed a onslaught aimed for and against president obama and mitt romney. >> romney as a millionaire who uses loopholes to pay a lower tax rate than nurses and police. romney's plan makes midel class families pay more. $2,000 a year while giving multimillionaires a tax cut. >> and what would you do now if you were barack obama? you would attack with ads spice and what some call unfair and untrue. ads that are, quote, blowing smoke, go too far and supported my more evidence. >> reporter: so they go back and forth and forth and back. the question here is are any voters listening anymore? even though many have made up their minds, they're growing tired of ads from both sides of the race. >> if i sigh see it and hear it, i will turn it off and go on with my day. >> i turn them down. i have gotten to the po
at the gm plant calling their employers worried and asking if it is true that their jobs are being shipped to china. the reason they are making these calls because governor romney has been running an ad says so except it is not true. everybody knows it is not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. gm says creating jobs here should be a source of bipartisan pride. governor romney has been running an ad that says so. except that it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. it the companies themselves have told them they are cutting jobs. saying "lead detroit go bankrupt." this is not a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. these car companies are putting a lot of effort into making great products but also making sure that everyone in america knows how committed they are to making cars here in america. you do not scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. that's not leadership. when i first made the decision to rescue the automobile industry, i knew it was not popular. one o
that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading right now, the obama campaign is doing exactly what they need to be doing. >> at a time like this, the visuals are just as important as the rhetoric. thank you both, maria, ana, nice to see you. >>> it is the other big story, superstorm sandy. it left behind widespread disruption and is blamed for dozens of deaths. the surprising way some of the victims died and how it may have been prevented. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved! [ female announcer ] live the regular life. phillips'. >>> the heartache is growing for families across the northeast, as sandy claims more lives. according to the latest number, the storm is now blamed for 106 deat
doubled-down with a new ad. i want to show everybody what that new ad looks like. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians building jeeps in china. >> chrysler issued a statement last week saying jeep has intention of shifting production of jeep models out of the north america to china. this president said this election is about trust. we have chrysler saying that romney was flat-out wrong, but he's still pushing this issue. do you believe that governor romney for the readers of "the register" is the candidate that should be trusted? >> it's great to be with you today. speaking as the editor and also as a member of the editorial, i want to preface that this was a five-member editorial board that sfent an awful lot of time looking at the candidates, the campaigns, the issues and platforms and visions and spent a lot of time being deliberative and thoughtful in our decision as it relates to the endorsement. at end of the day what we've heard repeatedly, thomas, for several, several months, through this whole cycle is the importance of the economic r
october since 2007 with a 10% increase. g.m. sales were up 5%, while ford's numbers increased not quite half a percent. wall street headed higher after new reports showed consumer confidence and manufacturing on the rise. the dow jones industrial average gained 136 points to close at 13,232. the nasdaq rose more than 42 points to close at 3,020. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to judy. >> woodruff: after devoting the first half of the week to hurricane sandy and its aftermath, the president returned to the campaign trail today. with the election around the corner, mr. obama received a surprise endorsement. with the devastation of the megastorm consuming his attention, new york city mayor michael bloomberg surprised the political world today by endorsing president obama for re-election. in a statement, bloomberg said the hurricane's cost "in lost lives, lost homes and lost business brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief." he credited mr. obama with taking major steps to reduce carbon consumption and noted not only president obama's po
that jonathan was mentioning because they're such blatant lies that the head of gm and chrysler had to come out. there's a population growing in america saying, wow, you might want to chill that hate down a little bit. it's a little daunting. you can almost see voters saying, did you know you just said that out loud? the rest of us heard you say that? >> the problem is, karen, they wouldn't be doing it if they didn't think they were appealing to somebody. i mean, you don't spend a million dollars on advertising unless you think you're going to get some return. >> but remember from the very beginning this has been a base election. president obama needs his base to come out if he's going to win. mitt romney needs his base to come out if he's going to win. and so the fact that he -- that they are still going this route spells trouble for governor romney. >> there aren't enough white men in this country to elect a president. i'm sorry, fellas. it's the truth. and the barack obama electorate is blacker and browner and it's women and it's far more diverse, like the country actually is. >> even republ
romney this week. he's gotten himself into a battle with gm and chrysler. he said that chrysler is going to shut down jeep production in the state of ohio and scared a bunch of workers in the region. the auto companies have made clear that's absolutely not true. i think we've seen a little bit of desperation in his closing message. >> and we have seen a slight swing for the president in our new swing state polls. i'm sure you saw what karl rove wrote today. in the last days of the presidential race, he says they favor mitt romney. the democrats are making a mistake because they're counting on inconsistent voters who may well not turn out. could turn out be the difference in this election? does karl rove have a point? >> well, i think turnout will make the difference in this election. republicans are betting on the fact that our coalition won't show up at the polls. if you look into those early vote numbers, they already have. we have a 60,000 vote lead in the state of iowa. across the country, it's a very diverse electorate so far. there are a lot of young people voting. there are a lot
for gm in that town. we said as gm goes, so goes janesville. we lost our plant and a lot of friends i grew up with who worked at that plant who thought they could get a good job like their folks did and make a good living for their families lost that. and that livelihood is gone, i have a buddy that went from $25 an hour down to $9 an hour without benefits. we have got to help these people who are stuck in between, who are in the midst he will of their earning -- middle of their earning years, when they're supposed to be building for their family, saving for their family, putting themselves on the path of pursuing their idea of happiness, making the american dream realized for themselves and their kids. we have 46 different job training programs coming out of washington, spread across seven different agencies and it's nothing but bureaucracy. get the bureaucrats out of the way, give people like john casey the ability to take this and get people the skills they need so they can get the jobs they want in the 21st century and have themselves back on the path to prosperity. it is so essen
a plan to help the auto industry. obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy, and sold vicar will to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> i would pull out the fire extinguisher for the guy's pants, because that is riddled with lies, and there's one thing you need to know about mitt romney, let detroit go bankrupt. >> bill: that's right. >> and the single biggest position these two folks had to make has been any auto industry. obama got it right, romney got it wrong. this guy's business experience is walking into a corporate room, with a boat load of money and say who is lucky enough to get this money? >> and what do you call it when you have a position one day and a different the next -- >> bill: romneysia. >> romneysia. >> bill: hey mayor, thank you for your time. and a great mayor of a great city. >> absolutely. get ready for the winter. >> bill: all right. we'll be right back with jamal simmons as a friend of bill. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." ♪ dose of politics from a fresh p
like. >> we're in toledo. >> we were in youngstown yesterday. it's the big gm lordstown plant. ohioans are really attached to the auto industry, and they definitely feel a lot of relief. there is three shifts going on at these plants. they were down to one in some cases and manufacture these plants were down to being shut. we are definitely sensing that people feel things are a little bit better. the question, suzanne, is who do they credit for that? >> and the other thing, too, is, of course, we've heard from the president saying, look, this is evidence that this is 32 straight months of private sector growth, and you have mitt romney on the other side saying that it's a sad reminder that the economy is at a standstill. his own words. beyond the spin here, what do you think voters are hearing when they hear this number today, and does it even change their perception at all of how the economy is doing? to either one of you. >> suzanne, you know, the uptick is not great news for the obama campaign. it is still -- >> this is a 7.8% to 7.9%. >> that's the top line number that people pay a
highlights that you would pick out the gm in this last month? >> we're pretty positive this month. ashley: the sales are up .4%. the estimate was up 3.5%. they have the ford fusion coming out, the chevy still coming out. it could be a point in which not all the vehicles are out yet, but along those lines, things will be better and we know down the road whether there really is a problem or not. ashley: speaking with forbes management team. the ceo at lease through 2014, but it appears that the head of ford america says things are looking good three a lot of people are saying the same. certainly over the past few two years, it has put a big wall in the turnaround because there are much different companies than there were just a few years ago. if things go well, it could be anybody. i think obviously, it is a big choice of this moment in time. ashley: i wanted to talk more about hurricane sandy. on the flipside of this, yes, it hurt sales for the last three days of this month. but one insurance claim paid up those flooded vehicles, and they could see a boost in parcells as a result. >> certa
jobs, gm is back, chrysler is the fastest-growing auto maker in the nation, what is their response? it is outrageous, their response. in the last hours of this campaign, they have become truly desperate. i came from ohio -- they are running an ad in ohio and the following -- this is the god's truth. the ad they are running says the following -- it says that barack obama bankrupting the automobile industry so that it could be sold to the italians -- i do not know they have against the italians -- sold to the italians so they could offshore to china. that is what they are saying -- i am not making this up. ladies and gentlemen, here is the cynical part. just imagine, your from the upper midwest, my state is delaware, which was one of the biggest automobile producing states in the country. after all those guys and families have been through, hard-working folks working their whole lives, through no fault of their own because of the policies of the last administration in the last year before got elected, 400,000 automobile jobs lost. here is what is more important -- 400,000 people drop
companies gm and chrysler to foreign. nowhere in the ads does it mention romney opposed the auto bailout. gm officials blasted the spot to a detroit newspaper saying no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repate rating properties back to this country. polls receiving high marks for his handling of superstorm sandy, it's unclear how much the race has changed. hoping to recapture the momentum he had before the storm, romney recycled a line of attack he used presandy. >> he's been out talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name, or first. and then attacking me day in and day out. >> reporter: the storm also interrupted romney's closing argument which he was supposed to start delivering last monday. instead, he has five days left to make his case against a president who has emerged from sandy perhaps now tougher to beat. wolf. >> jim acosta on the campaign trail with mitt romney. devastated barely begins to describe what happened to staten island, new york, in the wake of
. attorney general, as i remember, mitt romney wrote that op ed and said essentially the gm should go through a managed bankruptcy, which they did, which the president says that's essentially what saved the car industry. mr. attorney general? >> couple of things. first of all, ohio's recovery, if you look at the statistics, we've really not had the growth in the auto industry. what we've had is the growth as far as new jobs being created, in other areas. auto industry certainly is very, very important for the state. i don't think there is an area where the obama campaign is exaggerated more or misled more than on this issue. if you look back at the facts, what you had is a situation where governor romney said we needed federal intervention. he wanted to do it differently. the obama administration ended up taking detroit into bankruptcy. so for them to say that obama did not want to do that or that they had a different point of view, romney didn't want to do that is absolutely crazy. >> steve: governor, the fine word. >> the governor's own department of don't had just put -- development had ju

off. i just want to see that those bailouts of gm and chrysler benefited nascar because they took all the money the taxpayers gave them and they put it back into nascar because they were still sponsoring it. also, this president does not care about the middle class. we have only had one res on the social security. my mother got a $30 raised, and this is going on for years now. he gets back in we will not get another one. the only reason he gave this one is because of the election. >> host: all right, reid willson. >> guest: with nascar, i will use this opportunity to plug the hot line a little bit if you don't mind. we put up an interesting post last week by two republican named michael shannon and will feltis on the consumer habits and how much they like their sports and which sports the like and how that correlates to the voting data. as you can imagine, nascar is a pretty republican sport but it's interesting to hear that apparently they're getting bailout money. i have not heard that. but check that out. go to hot lineon call.org and see what that says about your politics. >> host
